Molassachusetts EP


Published 2010


About Hot Molasses:
Hot Molasses is Greater Somerville’s most beloved purveyor of power pop.  Named after the Molasses Flood that swept through Boston’s Commercial Street in 1919, Hot Molasses is once again rising to engulf you in its dark tide. The band consists of guitarist/vocalist Ben Abrams, bassist/vocalist Andrew Cohen, vocalist/tambourinist Julia Dickinson, drummer Pete Kriensky, and guitarist Doug Sisko. The quintet delivers tunes that pop like the Go-Betweens, wink like the Kinks, and fall down drunk like the Replacements. Committed to supporting local music and local progressive action since 2007, Hot Molasses has hosted benefit concerts that raised over $5000 for Boston-based social change organizations. Hot Molasses’ raucous live show and memorable sense of humor will shake your shoes, sweeten your batter, and have you begging for more.

About the Molassachusetts EP:
Hot Molasses’ debut EP delivers driving, intricate melodies layered with guitars, keyboards, and, at times, mandolins and banjos. The Molassachusetts EP’s five songs range from punky power pop to lilting country and tackle diverse subjects such as local sports heroes, relationship mishaps, and addiction.  Hot Molasses channels Wilco, Guided By Voices, and the New Pornographers in a topsy-turvy amalgam of soft strums, blistering distortion, and stray bleeps.
